People do notice your smile, and nothing beats a set of bright, straight, natural teeth. Maybe you’ve considered traditional braces with metal wires and brackets but don’t have the patience needed for this type of straightening process. Or maybe you just don’t want to show the world that you’re wearing a mouth full of metal. That’s why the iconic system called Invisalign® was developed. It makes life easier for the patient, and these “modern braces” are comfy and barely noticeable. Many famous celebrities choose Invisalign®, and you can’t even detect they’re wearing them on camera.
The Clear Alternative
The Invisalign® system features zero metal, brackets or wires and instead is comprised of clear, plastic, removable aligners to straighten the teeth. The custom-made aligners are created in a high-tech lab that uses detailed imaging of your teeth and mouth. You don’t have to worry about goopy putty impressions.
Invisalign® is worn every day, and a new set of aligners will be used every two weeks. The great part about the system is its convenience and comfort level. The aligners are removed for eating and drinking and when brushing your teeth. You are not restricted from enjoying even the gooiest or crunchiest foods. In fact, there is little that can interrupt your busy life when wearing clear aligners. You can continue to play sports, or be active in all the things you enjoy doing. You don’t have to worry about breaking any metal or wire brackets and rushing to the orthodontist for emergency repairs.
The Invisalign® system was designed for both teens and adults and can treat various types of teeth and alignment issues. For example, Invisalign® can fix crowded teeth or those with an underbite or overbite. The clear aligners can also treat crossbite, gaps or an open bite and crooked teeth.
Many patients like wearing clear aligners for the comfort they give. Every aligner is trimmed based on each user’s gum line for better comfort and appearance. Invisalign® is popular around the world because it works well and works fast.
